i am in laundry heaven!!!!!!!

a few nights ago i was doing yet again another load of laundry. i cannot believe how many i do a day!!! i put the load in right before we sat down for dinner. a couple hours later i heard the washer going--i thought that maybe in my sleep deprived state i didn't remember maybe putting in another load or exactly when i put in the other. later that night i heard it again. i asked "k" if he had put in a load. he said that he hadn't. so i checked it out. the same load had been washing for over 5 hours. not a good thing for the clothes!!!!!!!!!! it turns out that it was going through all of the cycles continuously. so--now we have a brand new washer and dryer!!!! i wasn't thrilled about spending the money but we have been living on borrowed time with these old ones--they belonged to my parents before they moved to Utah. i cannot believe how much fun i am having with these new machines! they are both front loading and energy efficient. i think that i am actually going to get rid of my mountain of laundry!!!!

Congrats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now you will be able to keep ahead of the kids and their messes. Maybe I should encourage them all to get dirty more often so Mom can play with her new toys

No Way! I remember you telling me about the ancient machines you had. But, front loading? I am jealous. Laundry heaven for sure.

'Tis the season, I guess. . .we just had to buy a new set, too! I'm running my first load right now, so we'll see how it goes with front loaders, right?

Diane,
I know just how you feel. We had to buy a new set when we moved. I too bought the front loader/stackables. I LOVE them! The only problem for me is that they hold SO much that I sometimes only get to do laundry once or twice a week. Maybe I just need a day job! I MISS YOU!!!
